Post From: Performance Improvements with Sierra Chart Exchange Data Feed

Also if you want to make the whole process complete for the most extreme performance, update to prerelease 1700 to take advantage improvements on the client-side as well.

On a technical side, one of the things that we did is rather than using a single map per sub exchange from the CME for looking up the associate symbol data objects every time there is an update for a particular symbol, we now use an individual map per multicast channel. This is especially helpful with the NYMEX which has a lot of symbols and is also very beneficial for the ES futures which has its own dedicated channel.

And is also especially helpful with options.

Now we want to also make a statement in regards to reality. In most cases you're not going to notice any difference with these improvements. you are not going to be able to see a difference just by looking at the data feed with the human eye. You may or may not see a benefit, when the market activity is very extreme. That depends upon whether there was any noticeable problem previously. But from a technical position, this is a major improvement.
